I was taking a much needed break from all things NaNo to catch up on blogs I follow when I stumbled upon a great post by Brenda Drake. She's hosting a Thanksgiving Blog Hop where you post things you are thankful for in your life. Now I'm a little late to the party, but couldn't resist joining in anyway. It's a great way to focus on all the wonderful things in our lives.
There's nothing I'm more thankful for in my life than my family. I have a loving husband and two great sons that are the center of my world. They've made my life complete.
But my family doesn't stop there. I'm from a large Italian family and I married into an even larger Italian family (didn't think that was possible). Our tree has many branches, and I wouldn't want it any other way.
We are a close knit group. Most of us live within a few blocks of each other ( the others are about a five to ten minute car ride away) and it works for us. There's nothing like having a strong support system of people who love you. I'm so thankful for my BIG ITALIAN FAMILY!
